Database Connections in VS2012

Hi, I'm currently working on a program that needs to access information from a database. I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 to compile my project and know the absolute minimum about making SQL statements in C++. While I spent most of yesterday browsing the forums of different websites for a tutorial or introduction to SQL in C++ that was low level enough for me, I couldn't find anything.
I am currently under the impression that I do not need any extra libraries besides those that come with VS2012 to do what I want, but I'm just completely at a loss.
If needed, I'll post some of my program, but if anyone could just give a very minimal example of how to connect to a database so that I could execute a SQL statement in my code and store information in a variable (or just point me to one you know of), that would be fantastic. Thanks in advance!
